A recent study conducted at England’s Reading University had some rather odd results: they discovered that drinking three glasses of champagne a day can help prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Professor Jeremy Spencer, one of the academics conducting the experiments, said the findings were very exciting.
“This research […] illustrates for the first time that moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning such as memory,” he told the Mail on Sunday, “the results were dramatic.”
According to the study, a compound found in pinot noir and pinot meunier—the grapes used to make bubbly—has been shown to prevent brain diseases and improve spatial memory.
A spokesperson from the Alzheimer’s Society said the results were interesting but that more research needs to be conducted. The researchers at Reading University agree, and are now hoping to conduct further testings on retirees.
